WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF
“What a dump.” Martha’s frank discontentment sets the tone of Edward Albee’s most renowned play: Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? The three act evening opens with sparring between Martha and her history professor husband, George.
Edward Albee is one of the “Big Four” classic American playwrights, including Eugene O’Neill, Tennessee Williams, and Arthur Miller. His career spans several decades, from the late 1950s to the present, during which he has written nearly 30 plays. As an American playwright and director working during the second half of the twentieth century, Albee might best be classified as part of the postmodern movement in the arts.
